Russian & Carniolan Breeding Yards

We are running two honeybee breeding yards; our Russian Honey Bee breeding yard, a picture (above) of it which is being used in our blog banner, and 8.5 miles away is our New World Carniolan  Honey Bee breeding yard (a picture below this post). We just moved out 41 capped Russian queen  cells and 36 capped Carniolan queen cells from our most recent grafting session to our breeding yards. Including remaining queen cells from our previous graftings we have over 100 queen cells in various states from – ready to hatch, hatched and mating to laying. We hope the majority of these new queen cells will successfully hatch and mate.
